Kidnappers of students of Greenfield University, Kaduna on Monday have made a fresh ransom demand of N100m and 10 motorcycles even as they threaten kill all the other students in their captivity.
At least 23 students including a staff of the privately-owned university, located along the Kaduna-Abuja highway were kidnapped from the school on April 20, 2021.
Five of them have been killed already by their captors.
Speaking with with the Hausa Service of Voice of America (VOA), a leader of the bandit group who who identified himself as Sani Idris Jalingo, Kaduna State Government or their families must meet their demands by Tuesday failing which they would kill all of them.
Jalingo who said that the families of the students had already paid N55 million to them said they had used the money to feed the students.
The man told VOA that he was a food seeker and not an attention seeker.
“You are speaking with the abductors of Greenfield students. We heard the utterances of the Kaduna State Governor that he will not pay ransom to bandits to purchase additional arms,” he said.
“If they fail to bring N100 million and 10 brand new Honda motorcycles known as Boko Haram by Tuesday, I can assure you they will use trucks to evacuate the bodies of the remaining students.”
